The media and the Left all in a huff about the Senators' letter to Iran

I'm amused by the reactions of the Left / Democrats / lying media to the letter 47 senators sent to the Iranians advising them that any treaty negotiated by the emperor would only bind the U.S. if ratified by the senate.

For those of you who've never bothered to read the Constitution, that's one of the key provisions of that document.  But amusingly, the Lying Media are spinning this as... treason!! 

For the benefit of the idiots in the media, let's review:  It's in the Constitution.  So unless you believe fidelity to the Constitution is now an act of treason--and since you're leftist morons to the last man and woman that's a very real possibility--then you're full of shit.  Which is exactly what we've come to expect from you.

The screaming from the media, of course, is because they have a huge interest in slapping down even the smallest hint of backbone or resistance to the emperor by Republicans.  Because if the latter get a whiff of success in exercising their Constitutionally-mandated power to rein in a rogue president, they just might do more of same.

OMG, says the leftist media, we can't allow that!!!  Must protect the Preciousssss!

Of course the media said exactly the same thing when future senator and secretary of state John F'n Kerry travelled to Paris back in 1973 or so and appeared before a tribunal to claim that the U.S. had committed war crimes throughout the Vietnam war (Kerry having seen so much of that as he spent a whopping two months in that country before hustling out after three scratches).

Of course the media said no such thing--not a damn word.

But surely our honest, unbiased media sounded screaming alarms when then-senator Kerry went to Nicaragua to negotiate with communist dictator Daniel Ortega in 1985.

Oh wait, the media didn't say a word--because both times that Kerry went overseas to advise a foreign foe and undercut the U.S. government a Republican was president.  So naturally the leftist media thought it was perfectly fine.

Of course the media didn't always look the other way when Democrats went to foreign countries to "negotiate."  For example, in 2002 three Dem Congressmen --Jim McDermott (D-WA), David Bonior (D-MI), and Mike Thompson (D-CA)--visited Baghdad to play defense for Saddam Hussein’s regime.  Bonior said openly he was acting on behalf of the government.

Viewers of Iraqi television learned the following (this translation comes from U.S. government sources):
"Three U.S. Congressmen arrived in Baghdad this morning on a visit lasting several days. The delegation will hold several meetings with Iraqi officials and members of the Foreign Relations Committee at the National Assembly. They will also visit hospitals to see the suffering caused by the unjust embargo and the shortage of medicines and medical supplies. Congressman Jim McDermott told reporters upon arrival at Saddam International Airport that the delegation members reject the policy of aggression dominating the U.S. administration."
The video then showed McDermott talking, with a voiceover translation in Arabic. Here is what Arabic-speaking audiences heard from McDermott:
"We are three veterans of the Vietnam War who came over here because we don't want war. We assert from here that we do not want the United States to wage war on any peace-loving countries. As members of Congress, we would like diplomatic efforts to continue so as not to launch any aggression. We will visit children's hospitals to see the negative impact of the sanctions imposed on Iraq. We hope that peace will prevail throughout the world."
While McDermott was still in Baghdad a CNN reporter asked him how he felt about being used as a propaganda tool against his own country.  McDermott replied, "If being used means that we're highlighting the suffering of Iraqi children, or any children, then, yes, we don't mind being used."

Democrat House minority leader Dick Gephardt carefully avoided criticizing his 3 Democrat colleagues for helping Hussein: "I don't agree with his views on some of the facts, and obviously we may not be in agreement on his conclusion about what to do about those facts. But every member, as I've said over and over again, has to reach their own conclusion."

Well let me tell ya, our media went ballistic over that one!

Oh wait...they didn't say jack-shit about it.  As far as the press was concerned this was absolutely fine.  But now the lying sacks of Gruber all have their panties in a twist because 47 senators gave the Iranians a clue about what old-timers once called "the supreme law of the land"--the Constitution.

You don't hear that anymore--partly because the press loves to play to young people and ignore people over the age of 65 or so--unless it's Hillary Clinton or the fake native American from Boston.  What's her name?  Fauxcahontas Warren, or some such.

So for the media and the Democrats to suddenly get all huffy about the senators telling the Iranians how our Constitution used to work is a hoot.  Not only is that not a crime, it's right there in plain text for anyone to read.  But it seems very few Dems--including those in congress--know jack-shit about the Constitution.  Rather, they all believe it means whatever the emperor says it means.  Not a whit more or less.

Let me be perfectly clear here:  I'm not arguing equivalence between what Kerry and Bonior and McDermott and other Dems did, and the letter to the Iranians.  Instead I don't think the letter to the Iranians is wrong or harmful to the U.S. in any way, shape or form. 

By contrast--huge contrast--Kerry and Bonior and McDermott and Pelosi and a dozen other Democrats who have sought to negotiate on behalf of the U.S. weren't giving a lesson on our Constitution, but were giving aid and comfort to the enemy, and seeking to undercut the government of the United States.  I think they should all have been imprisoned immediately on return to the U.S., period. 

With that said, it's certainly true that 47 senators fired a shot across the nose of the emperor.  They let His Excellency know, in no uncertain terms, that if he didn't submit his much-ballyhooed secret treaty with the rag-heads to the senate for confirmation--and if the senate didn't ratify it--the U.S. wouldn't be bound by it.

This, of course, they Lying Media could NOT tolerate.  "We must protect the Precioussss at all costs!"  So they swung into action.

The media is the enemy.  Fuck them.  They hate America and agree with Obama that the U.S. should have less influence in the world.  By contrast, they love Muslims and Russians and socialist dictators of all strips, and think whatever any member of those groups do is just wonderful.

And hey...are you "Ready for Hillary"?  Well you better get ready, citizen.  Cuz the media knows who their favorite grandmother is, ya know?
